Mookie Betts robbed Chris Carter of a HR and a fan of a souvenir

BY Chris Bahr • June 8, 2017

The Red Sox had a rather forgettable night at Yankee Stadium during Wednesday’s 8-0 loss – with the exception of one play.

Making a case for his second consecutive Gold Glove, Mookie Betts went over the right-field wall to take away a home run from Chris Carter in the sixth inning:

There was some question about whether the fan touched the ball – he did – but reports the Yankees weren’t granted a replay review because manager Joe Girardi didn’t request one within the allotted 30 seconds. Where’s Jeffrey Maier when you need him?

Fan interference or not, Betts said the ball was his all the way.

"I felt like I was going to catch it regardless of it hitting the guy's hand or not," Betts said. "I mean, I was just trying to make a play and fortunately it went in the glove."
